This is the age of the “Selfie Generation.” Everyday, millions of people of all ages document their every move with self-portraits taken on cellphones, iPads, and other devices. (Ever opened your front camera when you weren’t expecting it?)
Unfortunately, when those pictures are uploaded to social media, people don’t always like what they see- jowls, or maybe a double chin?
If you are one of the many people affected by the dreaded jowls or double chin, chances are you are not happy with your profile. Liposuction has traditionally been recommended for shrinking a double chin, but another option known as Kybella, is now available.
How can you tell whether you will get better results with Kybella vs liposuction, and which is better for you?
Neck Liposuction vs Kybella
In office neck liposuction has minimal downtime and maximal results. During neck liposuction, excess fat under the chin and neck is removed. Neck liposuction will sculpt and contour the neck area.
Liposuction in this area produces consistently good results, and has a particularly high satisfaction rate
Kybella is an injectable treatment that has been clinically proven to effectively treat localized deposits of fat under the chin. It is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid and dissolves under-chin fat.
Kybella is a non invasive fat reduction procedure which requires multiple, up to 6 series, of injections each done under local anesthesia. Kybella destroys the fat but it can also destroy nerves, muscles etc. The results are not immediate and you have to wait months to see the potential results.
Lastly, the cost of Kybella will be similar to in-office liposuction of the same area.
